Frank Lloyd Wright Garden Symposium: His Southern California Work and Legacy

Wilshire Ebell Theatre, Los Angeles, California

April 13, 2024 10:00am–4:00pm PST

The Frank Lloyd Wright Garden Symposium, organized by The Garden Conservancy, will examine how Frank Lloyd Wright and other early twentieth-century architects responded to the Southern California landscape and climate and how they invite us to think about contemporary issues in gardening. The symposium will feature landscape architects, historians, curators, and stewards of Frank Lloyd Wright’s homes. The event will be of interest to all gardeners, designers, architects, and students who are passionate about history and design and what they can teach us about gardening today.

The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy is a cultural sponsor of the symposium. Members of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy are invited to register at the special rate of $150. Members should have received the link to register via email. Please contact the office at [email protected] or 312.663.5500 if you did not.
